Default Just saw the new Toshiba commercial...

Looks pretty good. Shows Michael Imperioli watching King Kong and talking about how much he enjoys HD DVD,etc. Looks like HD DVD is going to take the lead again!

I've seen vintage TV commercials for the Ford Edsel.

Based on one commercial. That's just delusional.

Is that the best negative spin you can produce????

I've seen Sony commercials, so therefore they equal Edsel marketing too!!!

Let the consumer know what advantages your format has... Like overwhelming Studio Support? Or CE support? Or disc capacity? Or bitrate? Or... Or... Or... you get the idea.

All they talked about was what HD was about on both sides.

You know what I like best about that commercial? When the women finally gets a hold of the helicopter with her other hand, she immediately pulls her boyfriend down which should lead to his untimely death, but instead lands him on the couch as happy as could be.

If my girlfriend tried to kill me, I wouldn't be quite so content with whatever movie I was watching, regardless of how real it looked. This commercial is a farce!
